We have amassed over nine decades of knowledge. Our experience as owners, operators, & investors of businesses across numerous industries, in multiple stages of development, & with distinctive financial, talent & resource depth has taught us many lessons about what works to help a company grow and what does not.
We desire success with each of our portfolio companies, and with that comes responsibility. As principal investors of our own capital, we are deeply involved in each of our company’s progress. While we emphasize that day-to-day leadership remain with each of our senior leadership teams, we always stay involved and accessible.
HKZ is true private capital: we are not required to return capital back to third party investors. As such, we can take the long view and can, oftentimes, structure deals more creatively. We understand smaller companies have fewer resources to get the job done, and the additional time we provide helps to achieve desired returns.
